The New Crazy Anti-Obama Argument
Posted on: December 29, 2010 9:32 AM, by Ed Brayton
The right wing continues its pattern of ignoring perfectly valid criticisms of President Obama and opting instead for batshit crazy paranoia by declaring that he’s going to turn the country over to the Indians because we stole it from them in the first place. The Worldnutdaily headline reads:
Obama to give Manhattan back to Native Americans?
President believes nation can spare some sovereignty
And the AFA’s chief nutball, Bryan Fischer, leaves off the question mark and simply declares:
In other words, President Obama wants to give the entire land mass of the United States of America back to the Indians. He wants Indian tribes to be our new overlords.
Seriously, are they that stupid or do they know they’re full of shit? Anyone who thinks Obama, or any other president, is going to give Manhattan back to the Indians is either delusional or engaged in the most egregious demagoguery imaginable. And the fact that it won’t happen will not change their thinking one bit.
And of course, it’s all nonsense.
This guy, this kook, Bryan Fischer is a case in point reason as to why it is perfectly acceptable to use the perjorative phrase “Tea Bagger” to describe the crazy radical insane lunatics the Tea Party embraces, harbors, and give a voice too.
